“…I am madly in love with life! I am so madly in love with life, that because of it, I have fallen in love with death also. It is part of life. When you love life totally, how can you avoid death? You have to love death also. When you love a flower deeply, you love its withering away also. When you love a woman deeply, you love her getting old also, you one day love her death also.
This is part, part of the woman. The old age has not happen from outside, it has come from the inside. The beautiful face has become wrinkled now __ you love those wrinkles also,
They are part of your woman, you love a man and his hair grown white __ you love those hairs also, they are not happened from the outside; they are not accidents. Life is unfolding,……
Love loves all. Love knows nothing else than love, hence I say, love death, if you can love death it will be very simple to love life. If you can love even death, there is no problem.
